New Delhi: As the fifth day of his indefinite hunger strike begun on Saturday, Gandhian Anna Hazare seemed to be in high spirits calling for an unrelenting fight against corruption.
“We will stick with the fast and protest till the Jan Lokpal Bill is passed by the parliament,” Hazare said talking to media persons.
Taking pot-shots at the politicians, the civil rights activist said, “Country’s wealth is not threatened by the thieves, but its guards.”
Meanwhile, a team of doctors also did a routine check-up of Anna Hazare and declared that he is completely fit.
After the check-up, Anna informed reporters that he has lost 3.5 Kg weight but insisted to continue the fight till his last breath.
